MILWAUKEE -- The Milwaukee Business Journal hosted its "40 Under 40" awards ceremony on Monday evening, February 22nd.

The "40 Under 40" program highlights up-and-coming business leaders in southeastern Wisconsin.

Milwaukee Business Journal officials said they received about 280 nominations for this year's class, but there can only be 40 winners.

Among them was Jeff Hoffman, who said he was thrilled to even be nominated.

"Surprise email, completely unexpected and had to kinda pinch myself a couple times to make sure it wasn't spam!" Hoffman said.

Hoffman works in real estate at Cushman & Wakefield/The Boerke Co.

He said the "40 Under 40" award is something he's long considered one of the best in Milwaukee.
